NFCC Allied Health Department accepting student applications for Fall Term 2014
North Florida Community College’s Allied Health Department is currently accepting students for its Medical Administrative Specialist and Pharmacy Technician certificate programs. Applications for these programs are only accepted once a year with classes beginning in August during NFCC’s fall term. The deadline to apply for Fall Term 2014 is now July 28. Potential students are encouraged to start the application now in order to complete application, testing and entrance requirements by the July 28 deadline. Classes begin Aug. 25, 2014.
Both of these PSAV (Post Secondary Adult Vocational) certificate programs take less than a year to complete, approximately 10 months, and prepare graduates to enter the workforce as trained professionals.
The MEDICAL ADMINISTRATIVE SPECIALIST program prepares students to work as office clerks, secretaries, or administrative specialists in a medical setting such as doctor’s offices, hospitals, and medical research facilities. The program also provides supplemental training for persons previously or currently employed in any of these occupations. This PSAV Certificate is approved by the Florida State Board of Education to articulate 18 credits into an Associate in Science Degree in Office Administration for students looking to further their education.
NFCC’s PHARMACY TECHNICIAN program prepares students to enter the workforce as trained professionals in the ever-expanding field of healthcare and prescription medicine. In just ten months graduates are well prepared to seek employment as Certified and Registered Pharmacy Technicians. Graduates are also well prepared to take the National Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam. Achievement of a passing score on this exam and registration with the Florida State Board of Pharmacy enables graduates to seek employment as a Certified and Registered Pharmacy Technician.
Student applications are being accepted through July 28. For more information, contact NFCC Allied Health Advisor Debbie Bass in the NFCC Career and Technical Education Center (Bldg. 13) at (850) 973-1662 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
